Cubs win fifth straight
Cubs 8, Rockies 5
Cliff Floyd helped the Cubs get off to a good start on Tuesday with a two-run blast. (AP)
 Floyd's two-run homer
Despite allowing four runs on six hits and a season-high five walks, starter Ted Lilly kept the Cubs in the game. Cliff Floyd launched a two-run homer in the first to help the offense heat up, and Alfonso Soriano smoked two hits, scored twice and added his 10th outfield assist.
